PaaS’ new VAR channel…

As Ray Kurzweil prognosticated in his book, The Age of the Spiritual Machine, ideas will become a currency in a hyper connected world. It is with that in mind that the list of PaaS providers will be concatenating over time and developer engines will become the new VAR to PaaS providers.

For example, look at this company: http://www.wolfram.com/products/gridmathematica/ – see how they are quite neutral to whose computing cycles they leverage and can ostensibly switch “platforms” (aka, Clouds) in and out as needed (or required)…however, their value proposition is to enable their clients to focus on the business need versus commodity hardware mgmt (a totally sunk/lost cost these days).

This is the new paradigm going forward…
